I enjoyed compiling the list of tweets this week. It’s been a great week, full of jokes and ‘banter’ and some absolutely terrible takes and horrific take downs.
Puscas is up there with our worst ever signings. Absolutely dreadful player.— charlie (@dingcharlie_) January 18, 2020
We start with a scorching hot take. I’m not sure I can get on board the thought of Puscas being worse than Karl Sheppard or Emerse Fae.
With us now having a very slim chance of the playoffs would you play a slightly weakened team on Wednesday to go full strength for the cup on Saturday? #readingfc— Louis Stagg (@dinglouis_) January 19, 2020
I’m heartened by the response to this poll. 81% of Reading fans aren’t throwing in the towel for the play-offs, which is good. 19% are wrong. Just wrong.
1 loss and you give up— (@ScottishPirlo26) January 19, 2020
Sunday’s are shite but they’re even shitter when you realise the next away day is Reading FC— karl (@hcafckarl) January 19, 2020
I have no idea what Reading fans have done to rattle the cages of most of the league’s other fans, but... It appears we have.

Bloody hell - where did those years go? Best birthday cake ever though pic.twitter.com/GecYccAcoi— Alan of the Shire (@Munro_888) January 19, 2020
Ruddy marvellous. Happy birthday, Alan, from Mr. Tweets Of The Week.
If #ReadingFC are to reach Playoffs, we can only drop 4 points for every 5 games we play.— (@GarethD_) January 20, 2020
That's an average of 2.2 points per game, giving us an approximate 77 point finish.
For the nerdier readers among you, this is the formula for potential promotion.
Reading currently sat atop of the Championship for fewest goals conceded from corners. #ReadingFC https://t.co/2s3XlAqNAb— PannasandNutmegs (@PannasNutmegs) January 22, 2020
Slick in attack, mean at the back, it’s Blue Army!
Happy 33rd Birthday to Shane Long!— RFC Latest (@RFCLatest) January 22, 2020
One of my first man crushes. Super swoon when you realise the Irishman can play guitar too.
I don't like exposing tweets but this typifies @lukesouthwood1. Unwavering commitment, wants to stay, wants a career here and prefers shorter deals so he keeps pushing himself to improve. Cracking loan at @accies once he got his first break. The lads going places. #ReadingFC pic.twitter.com/vq3c8504Sa— Matheus de Andrade (@maffff) January 21, 2020
I don’t want Rafael to leave, but I also want Southwood to play at some point soon. Two goalkeepers, anyone?
@ReadingFC I wonder if Matt Miazga could become the man up front to hold the ball up and be a strong presence in the opponents box? What do you think @TimDellor & @willow1871 ?? Let’s hope for a big win at Forest tonight!!!— Tom Jordan (@tomjordan332) January 22, 2020
Staggering. Truly staggering.
That is creative and brilliant. Will never happen in football but would be a sensible solution.— Tim Dellor (@TimDellor) January 22, 2020
Why Miazga and not Morisson? Why Miazga and not Moore? Are we just naming big players? Not a chance in hell could he play there. Just my thoughts. Urzzz— Ady Williams (@willow1871) January 22, 2020
Wait for it...
I hope Tim's not driving you all up to Nottingham tonight lads as he's evidently been on the whiskey a while— Marc Mayo (@ThatMarcMayo) January 22, 2020
20000 away fans for a Tuesday night away game. Solid effort from the lads. #ReadingFC #nffc pic.twitter.com/i8KfJRt3Dy— Kebaldo (@KebesSock) January 22, 2020
Fair bloomin’ play to the mighty Royals...

How long are Reading fans 13 out for? #readingfc https://t.co/XBQMhHDGu3— George (@_GeorgeRFC) January 22, 2020
Normally it’s the opposition that takes the mic out of the Number 13 thing. Now even our own are turning against us.
Sammy says, “7 defenders? Is that all?!” #ReadingFC https://t.co/z9Jek8dteo— Scott from the States (@American_Royals) January 22, 2020
I like this lad. He’s good.
RT and ask your friends guys we need you all. I promise I throw 5 jerseys in the crowd behind me after the final whistle (and the win) if you guys gather enough people !! Let's get it Forrest ⚪️— Samba brice (@samba_brice) January 21, 2020
This boded well.
How did that work out for you mr samba ? #readingfc https://t.co/EztCjTokyA— cameron macken (@ronniemac93) January 22, 2020

This is the equivalent of a John Swift pass.#ReadingFC— Second Tier Podcast (@TheSecondTier) January 22, 2020
Now the rest of the league is getting on board the Swift Hype Train.

Fair play Forest, held the lead for 4 minutes tonight #NFFC #readingfc— Tom (@TomMoore0506) January 22, 2020
I sense a fresh new ‘fake rivalry’ brewing...
That’s your lot. Now go and get some fresh air.
